Marlow Yachts

Specialising in vessels capable of ocean transits, Marlow Yachts is a semi-custom luxury yacht builder whose clientele is by nature adventurous. Marlow owners often gather for rendezvous and cruises.

History

In 1998, company namesake, yacht designer David Marlow, and naval architect Doug Zurn created the proprietary designs for the Marlow Explorer 57C, 61C and 65C. Marlow and Zurn searched for a shipyard and building process worldwide. Ultimately, they selected a high-tech shipyard in China, where Marlow Yachts are built using RIVAT© (Resin Infused Vacuum Assisted Transfer), a unique closed-moulding system that removes ozone-harming chemicals before they can be emitted.

Marlow’s facility near Xiamen, China, is designed to produce cutting-edge yachts while using environmentally friendly building processes. A dedicated facility for creating vessel moulds features climate control for safe storage of exotic chemicals. The yard is equipped to build yachts up to 33 metres.

In 2012, David Marlow also bought the assets of U.S. recreational boat builder Luhrs Marine, adding several small recreational boat companies to the company portfolio.

Notable Yachts

The company’s first long-range cruiser, the Marlow Explorer 65C was introduced at the 2001 Miami International Boat Show. The Marlow Voyager 76, which followed about a decade later, can cross any ocean nonstop with its extreme cruising range. The Marlow Explorer 97E was launched in 2011 and features a wide beam and range of 4,000 miles at 9 knots.
